Waipu Sunrise

I took this shot on the morning that Tania and I were heading back to Auckland from Waipu recently. This was after a long weekend of sun and surf, classic cars, good food, good coffee and good company! I took a few shots from her parents’ deck overlooking the estuary, which heads out to the beach at Waipu Cove. This is my favourite. I love the reflections on the water, the contrast in colours between grey cloud and hot colours from the sun. Also, the Mt Doom looking island off in the distance (Hen and Chickens Islands).
